Bolt adds Abeokuta, Enugu to operations, reiterates commitment to financial empowerment
Bolt, a leading on-demand transportation platform, has added Abeokuta and Enugu to the number of cities it is serving, adding that drivers on its platform are recording increased profits.
Commenting on the platform’s drive to empower more individuals financially in 2020, the country manager, Femi Akin-Laguda, said that since 2016, tens of thousands of drivers have joined Bolt in 11 cities across Nigeria with Abeokuta and Enugu being the most recently launched operations.
He added that Bolt will continue to provide a hassle-free way for Nigerians to profit and legitimately make extra cash using their car.
“In December 2019 and January 2020, drivers on Bolt platform paid as low as 0 per cent in commission depending on their activity on the platform with more bonus schemes planned for the future. The default commission Bolt takes is 15-20 per cent, which is significantly lower than what competitors take, making Bolt the go-to platform that allows drivers to pay less while they make more money,” Akin-Laguda said.
According to him, “the key to making the most of the Bolt app for drivers is time management, smart and quality service delivery to riders.
“To become a Bolt driver, simply sign up using your National Identity Number or valid driver’s license and vehicle registration. Upon sign up, prospective drivers will be required to take a 45-minute training at the nearest Bolt office and get their identity verified via the identity verification portal.”
Formerly known as Taxify, Bolt maintained that it is committed to its mission of making urban transportation more convenient and affordable for Nigerians while providing flexible employment opportunities to thousands of drivers and vehicle owners.
